I keep hearing that St. Mary's is trash. My guess is reputation/placement? Care to comment?
So, they negotiated with the sellers to increase the offer price and have the sellers pick up the closing costs. The seller was not out any money, and the buyer did not have to pay the closing costs up front.
I'm trying to decide between a couple different schools, and instead of asking your opinion about each one, i'm more interested in hearing from current students who took a scholarship from a lower ranked school only to pass up an offer of admission from a T-1. (say the very low end of the first tier to be specific)
Did you end up doing well within your class? Can anything really be said about being in the top 90th percentile of the entering class? I assume there is somewhat of a correlation, i'm just curious if anyone has an experience that would enhance or detract from that logic. Finally, are you happy with your choice?
Note: I'm just looking for generalizations here and personal narrative, i realize the location and name of the schools im considering plays a large factor, but i'm more interested in hearing from people from any school that have turned down a more prestigous school only to enter in the top 80-90th percentile with a scholarship at a lesser ranked school. Thanks a lot!

If I'm in sweats, I go unnoticed, but if I'm in jeans that look as if they've been painted on, then I'm loved. I have learned how to manipulate the system and am leveling the playing field by using what I have.
Being that this is so snonymous, I'll even go as far as to say that I've played my Torts professor like a fiddle, which set me up to possibly make journal. So, 15 mins to him will probably amount to a lifetime of success for me! In the end who got the better deal? I thought so...
